Using big data to document local Chinese community network

Prof Kenneth Dean, Head of the Dept of Chinese Studies at NUS Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, and Senior Research Fellow Dr Hue Guan Thye from the same department, are leading a research to establish a database of prominent Chinese personalities and the contributions they made to early Singapore from the 19th to 21st centuries. The research also documents a network of Chinese community leaders and low- and middle-level social personalities through the use of big data.
